Hello from Bowtown Music and welcome to our November blog where we talk about all things musical like instruments, lessons, and one of my personal favorites, recording studios. This month I would like to talk a bit about our recording studio and some of the new features we have incorporated.

As always it is our primary objective to offer the best services and products possible in all of our various activities. Whether it is music lessons, our retail sector or our audio recording services, we try to keep abreast of the latest developments.

I have mentioned in past blogs about the new construction and upgrades to our sound studio and engineering room. The sound studio is a spacious 17’X15′ room also incorporating an isolation booth for drums and vocals. With up to 16 tracks of simultaneous recording we are able to accommodate a full band. To get the best recordings you have to start with the best microphone so we are very pleased with the addition of a Neumann U87 to our stock. The U87 is considered to be the best professional quality microphone in the industry. The next step in the chain is the audio interface which converts the analogue signal from the microphone to a digital signal utilized by the Pro Tools software. For this stage we have added a Lynx Aurora interface also considered to be among the finest studio quality converters in the business.

We are also very pleased to announce that Neumann and Sennheiser products including microphones, headphones, speaker monitors and related electronic equipment will be available through our shop in Kensington and online. Please come by or visit our website for much more information.
